Starbucks' Caramel Popcorn Pretzel Frappuccino Was Only Available In This Country

There are plenty of amazing Starbucks Frappuccinos that are only available in other countries, and the Caramel Popcorn Pretzel Frappuccino is simply the next in a line of creative blended drinks that Americans hope to try one day. While it cannot be ordered from any secret menu in the U.S., this creative combination of salty and sweet has appeared in just one other country. Yet that won't stop green and gold level Starbucks rewards members from their dreams of ordering this drink one day.

While Starbucks has rolled out some incredible drinks in other parts of the world, like theĀ Cherry Pie Frappuccino in Japan or the Mermaid Frappuccino in Mexico, the Caramel Popcorn Pretzel Frappuccino can only be found in Australia. According to Bustle, Starbucks locations in Australia first introduced the special drink in 2018. While the drink doesn't appear to have surfaced anywhere else in recent years, perhaps it will continue to spread across the rest of the world. There was, after all, a very similar drink that made an appearance one year earlier in the United Kingdom (via Food Beast).

This is what the Caramel Popcorn Pretzel Frappuccino entails

Those lucky enough to try the Caramel Popcorn Pretzel Frappuccino will be blessed with a drink piled high with delicious salty-sweet treats. While it isn't exactly known what makes up the base of the Caramel Popcorn Pretzel Frappuccino, it could be similar to the Caramel Popcorn Frappuccino that Food Beast notes was served up in the U.K. in 2017. That drink featured a creme base that was blended with ice, popcorn flavored syrup, and popcorn brittle. The drink was then topped with whipped cream, butterscotch syrup, and a sprinkling of popcorn brittle.

We don't know if the Caramel Popcorn Pretzel Frappuccino has any kind of salty pretzel component blended into the drink itself. However, we know that it does have real caramel popcorn and pretzels on top of its whipped cream, as well as a syrup described as "Pop'zel (popcorn meets pretzel)." According to the Starbucks Australia menu, the limited-edition drink appears to be gone, at least for now, so only Australians or those lucky enough to visit in 2018 know what the drink actually tastes like.
